Marin Residents Urged to Fill Up Gas Tanks Before Heading West After Crash Disables Pumps

By Bay City News Service: 

Drivers visiting western Marin County this week should make sure they have plenty of gasoline as damage to a Point Reyes Station gas station has left the area with few places to refuel, the California Highway Patrol said Wednesday.

A vehicle collision at the Greenbridge Gas & Auto Service station at 11401 state Highway 1 in Point Reyes Station has caused major damage that disabled all gas pumps, according to CHP Officer Daniel Hill.

The gas pumps will take 4 to 6 days to fix, leaving the Marin County coast area with only one gas station in Bolinas.

The next closest gas station on the coast is in Bodega Bay, around 45 miles apart, Hill said.

Drivers can also expect delays due to increased calls for roadside assistance as other drivers run out of gas.

"We are encouraging the public to plan ahead and venture out only with a full tank of gas, when possible," Hill said.

Renee, this is a great public service announcement. Thank you. Outside of Point Reyes I think the only other two gas stations anywhere close are in Bolinas and Bodega Bay.
